Where to find the Side Minigun and Side Rifle

A new Fortnite challenge requires players to find a Side Minigun and a Side Rifle in a single match. They can be found inside chests.

The Sideways Minigun and Sideways Rifle are back fortnite. Collecting them both is key to completing a new Seasonal Challenge. Every week, fortnite fills in with recent changes to the map and the quests that come with it. Players looking to max out their Battle Pass this season will benefit from removing seasonal quests as soon as possible. Once the player reaches level 100, they can unlock the Doctor Strange skin as a reward.

The Side Minigun and Side Rifle were introduced in an older season of fortnite. It was introduced in Chapter 2, Season 8, and was a game mechanic that appeared randomly on the map. They appeared with Sideways Encounters on fortniteand would spawn cube monsters that players could take down. It was impossible to build, but the gravity was much weaker, making it possible to cross the bubble and to move away from the monsters. Now only Sideways weapons are back. One of the seasonal challenges requires players to find two in a single game.

To find the side minigun and rifle, the player will simply have to find them in treasure chests. There’s no promised location on the map that contains these weapons, but they spawn fairly frequently when opening chests. The best thing to do would be to head to a place with tons of treasure chests like Tilted Towers or the Daily Bugle. These are populated with buildings full of treasure chests on almost every floor, making it much more likely that the side minigun and rifle will spawn. They can also spawn on the ground as floor loot.
